A new floor has been put in,  and a deep stairway built to the proposed rink, 011 which the votith of the  city can break their necks without undue  iccklessuess. The second story of the  building can easily be converted into an  assignation establishment;  Fianlt Mosher and T. McTntyre returned on Tuesday evening's stage from  the AVest Fork.

The game was a good one throughout  and at the end of the ninth inning was  a tie In the tenth Chesaw was shut out  and Greenwood scored one run. R.J.  Sanders attended to the decisions so impartially that no bats were used iu protest.  Since Mr. Ross returned from Ottawa  there has been considerable discussion as  to thc best location for thc proposed government buildings iu Greenwood. The  Ledge is not interested particularly, so  would suggest the following committee  to choose the most suitable .site: Dr.  Simmons, C. H. Fair, F.. G. Warren, F.  W.

I'., has returned from  South Africa and will be iu Greenwood  this week. Mr. Coryell went to South  Africa near the close bribe Boer war, aud  was for a time in the employ of the government as engineer on railway construction. He efterwards formed a company  and engaged in boring artesian wells. He  is oue of the old timers of the Boundary  district, having for years been engaged  in suiveying. In the winter of 1SS7 he  and \\*. Murray located the ranch near  Grand Forks, now occupied by Frank  Coryell.  Geo. Ilc.ithcrton iclurned this week  from attending the 16th annual conven-  iion of the 'Western Federation of Miners  at Denver, Colo. The convention was  open to the public end lasted fifteen days.  The W. V. M. was brougut in closer touch  with the United Mine Workers and may  in time amalgamate with rhat organization. Mover was elected picsideut and  Mills sccrelary.treasurer. About 125  delegates were present from all parts of  the west andjtlte meeting was very harmonious. Mr. Hcatlicrtoti was highly  pleased with the trip although the dust  a'ong the line of iravel was rather disagreeable.  Duncan Ross, M. P., returned on vSat-  urday to spend a few (lays iu Greenwood.  He says that if an election lakes place  this year it will probably be in November, and that the election iu Vale-Cariboo  will occur three ^weeks later. The past  session has been the most trying one to  members in the history of the Dominion  parliament. This was especially so in  the last two. months. Not even a decent  scrap to enliven the monotony of the  teu-lionr sittings. Mr. Ross leaves next  week for Vernon to attend the irrigating  convention, after which he will probably  go to Ottawa to remove as far as possible  any parliamentary'stumbling blocks in  the way of the much-needed Midway and  Vernon reilway.  Martin Burrel, Conservative candidate  for Vale Cariboo, was a visitor iu the city  Thursday of last week, on his way home  after a trip through the Siinilkaineen  Me was so busy with the inner circle of  the parly during his short stay here, that  it was impossible for the Ledge to pump  him over even the telephone.' Martin, old  boy, you'll have to mingle if you want to  catch votes. The wireless, oral, baby-  kissing, church-festival system is ���������whit  wins a campaign. It is not Laurier who  keeps thc Liberal party in power; neither  is it oratory and theory. It is the boys  who go after the millions of acres, who  are the .middlemen between the great  corporations and the people, who see  that government contractors divide the  kitty. The rollicking, off-handed boys  who kiss the old ladies' haoics and tickle  the,old men's pockets, are the leaders  iu Canada today, Don't try lo bo a  Laurier, 'Martin. It is impossible. You  wouldn't cure to result iu n Hyinaii, but  you can be oVSiltou, an Oliver, a Burrows, or a Fisher, Don't be a l'ugslcy  and expect to be elected in a white constituency.

Duncan McRae has gone on a fishing  trip lo Canyon City. He will be joined  by Martin Andeison, Thos. Jtemmetlc  and others later in the week.  S. Moore, B. A., was a caller at The  Ledge office yesterday. Mr. Moore arrived from Moyie this week and has been  engaged.to leach the Boundary Falls  school.  -Harry Hook has joined the staff of E.  W. Widdowson in Nelson and will have  charge of thc assaying office in Truil.  Mr. Widdowson is one of the most up-to-  date and enterprising" assayers in the  province.  Kinney & McDonald have purchased  the lot on the corner of Copper and Wellington streets aud are, building a shop  25,:)y 75 fccti which will be the best-  eqquipped carriage and blacksmith shops  in the interior.  Dr. aud Mrs, Mathison returned to  town Friday last, making the trip froui  Suminerlai'.d to Gieeuwood iu a da}- and  a half. Yesterday the doctor reopened  his office and will remain here for two or  three weeks before returning to Kclowna.  Neglected bush fires caused the dc-  slruclion of Fernie la=' "aturday, rendering 5,000 people homeless, and causing a  loss of "several millions of dollars and  many lives. No large Canadian town  was ever so completely w'ped out. and  Fernie is surely entitled *n b^ called the  city of energy and calamity.  Monday morning the Midway C. P. R.  station was destroyed by fire, the agent,  Howard R. Stevenson, losing all his  household effects, - and Mr. and Mrs.  Stevenson and child managing to get  0ut.j11stJ_11.time. . The fireis supposed to  have originated iu thVkitclieu. Although  Mr. Stevenson lost all his household effects he managed to save the records of  the company.  Robt. Denzler of Spokane was in the  city last week. Mr. Denzler came to the  district in 1M91 andjocated in Greenwood  wood camp���������now Phoenix. At that  time the only prospectors in Green-  camp were Henry White aud Matt Hotter, who located the Old Iionsides and  Knob Hill, the principal properties of  the Granby. Mr. Denzler made a number of locations in the district, many of  which turned out well.  A. Letter received in the cily from A.  S. J'.mbree says that he has arrived safely  at Nome and assumed his duties as editor  of the Industrial Worker. They were  forty days on the trip up, and during the  voyage the ship attempted to split an  iceberg, but failed. The passengers  have nearly all entered actions for damages against the steamship company for  cruelty, starvation, etc. There is no place  iu thc world where providence plays so  important a part as aboard ship, and the  marine court usually bases its decisions  more on the Act of Providence than on  equitv. A marine court has been known  to decide that a marline-spike in the  hands of an irate male was au instrument  of providence, while providence played  no unimportant part iu saving the sailors'  skull from being smashed in. Thc injured can occasionally get damages from  a railway company, but aboard ship the  all-pervading "Act of Providence" precludes tlie possibility of damages being  obtained.  R T. Lowery has gone east to once  more study the" ways of the tcuderfeet,  and gaze at ten brass bands iu I'etroha  lor a short time. His impressions and  depressions of the cent belt will appear  iu several papers later in tho fall. It is  rumoied that the colo.iel is going to be  married on the 15th. The late- adornment of his person would in a manner  veiify this rumor. S.iiiuday he greased  one of his Sunday shoes. The. other shoe  had been Juiidoi- the Gordon press for  three months. Sunday was given over to  meditation, writing editorials,'and slulf.  .Monday lie had the 'reef-points slashed  off his whiskers. Tuesday he appeared  in black shirt, pink tie, and new suit of  clothes made in Kaslo in 1S92 when he  weighed 97;'/ pounds. He now tips the  scales at 146 with his shoes 011. The  shoes are four sizes roomy. Wednesday  he sequestered a pair of socks, a handkerchief, a.full sett of pyjamas, .144 and  a sword cane and started for the train.  Jt is hoped she is a strong minded aud  able-bodied female, for nothing will tend  more quickly to dissipate illusions than  a strong minded -woman or rocking an  old-fashioned cradle.

You can  therefore inform your people of this fact,  and furthermore state that we positively  guarantee the production as foregoing or  ttioncv will be refunded after the second  act.

A Slow Road.  Railroad construction is mooching  along with a gang of about 150 men  spread over some twenty five miles of  right-of-way. At thc present rate of progress it will take fifty years to complete  the V., V. & E. to the coast and then  most of the present day citizens of Princeton will have, beoome mummies 'embalmed in the fire-resisting clay to be  found underneath the town. The outlook is not encouraging.  Other towns and cities are waiting on  the completion of the line to Princeton,  as, the following paragraph in the Spokane Spokesman-Review of recent date  will show :  "Coal for domestic use, costing $12 a  ton here last winter will be reduced to  $5 or 56 a ton as soon as transportation is  secured by the extension of the V., V. &  E. railroad to the Princeton, B. C, coal  fields."  It is understood a large order for  trestle timber has been left with the  Similkameen Lumber company, and also  that a small gang of rockmen and tunnel-  men will soon be at work near town.���������  Similkameen Star.  A Strong Fausfc.  Probably the finest scenery ever seen  011 a Brandon stage lavished the e3*es of  the audience at the Auditorium last evening, says the Brandon Sun, when the  Porter J. White production of Gothe's  masterpiece, "Faust," was presented in  a powerful manner.  All that was promised of this favorite  company was realized, aud all the best  conceptions of this great drama were accentuated in last evening's presentation.  Of the leading characters. Mephisto, in  the person of William Richards, was au  artful 'devil of alluring personality,  who won {his objects by the artful  presentation of his plans. Faust was  Frederick J. Wilson, of clear voice, fine  build, and a.winning manner that would  command tlie envy of mortals. Marguerite appeared as the embodiment of  charm and innocence, and later of  tragedy, in the persen of Miss Olga  Vcm. Miss Verne's voice is of marvellous quality.  The company numbers twenty members, all equal to their parts.  The great lesson of sin. expiation and  redemption can hardly be more strikingly shown than iu a presentation of  "Faust" as was enjoyed by a fair audience at the Auditorium last night.  Tee company will appear in the Auditorium, Greenwood. Wednesday evening, August 12. Usual pi ices. ' Plan at  Logan & Co., jewelers.  Hanged at Kamloops.  Cedio was hanged in Kamloop.s last  Fiiday morning. He made a confession  the day previous.  The confession states that he is innocent of the crime charged against him  and named two others, Moravelli and  Caglistro, as instigators and perpetrators  of the destruction of King's hotel at Niagara iu November, 1906, which resulted  in the death of Louise King. It is affirmed thrt Moravelli was intimate with  King's wife and the intention was to ;;ot  rid of King. To this effect the powder  was carried into the house. Cedio declared he tried to warn King, but hi.s imperfect knowledge of English impeded  him and bis warning waa mistranslated  by Moraveli. The latter and Caglistro  took him away and made him swear on  crossed daggers not to say. anything further on the matter, ami they sent him to  Salt Lake, where he learnt for the fust  time of the deStructiotiof the hotel.  The confession is ii������i credited, as it  conflicts with the evidence. It was read  on the scaffold at Cedio's tequest.  Through Father Pecoul as interpreter the  prisoner thanked the jail officials for  their kind treatment, and hoped his wile  and family in Italy would be cared for.  Then he again affirmed his innocence  aud faced death with au iron nerve.  City Council.  (icorge Weiler died in Victoria a few  days ago.  A fruit growers' association has been  formed at Grand Forks.  Iu Grand Forks the Valhalla hotel has  rcopnncd for business.  At the meeting on Monday evening  there were present Mayor Bunting and  Aldermen Sutherland, Fleming, Meyer  and Mortimer. Minutes of the previous  meeting were read and adopted.  Mr. Craufurd of the Nelson Iron Works  asked that the water rate of 55 for the  foundry be lowered.  A tender of 5300 for a hook and ladder  wagon was received from Kinney-& McDonald. It was laid over until next  meeting.  A letter was read from J. L, Martin re  damage to Providence creek main. The  matter was relerred to the city solicitor.  A report from the lire department  stated that a false alarm was turned in  June 24th, which cost the city }20.  The water committee reported ordering 24 curb boxes from the Crane Co.,  and that the extension on (lovcriiiiient  street was about completed.  It was decided to put on au exlra night  watchman during the dry season at 53 a  shift..  It was decided to engage K. McKeU/.ie  to repair the south end ami Decdwood  street bridges.  . John Mulheni was granted  ten days'  leave of abtencc.  It was dec'deil that any member of the  council could apply his indemnity on his  taxes.

Stamford, the mining promoter  who is well-known iu Nelson, is now in  Victoria working on the formation of a  company to put in water at Prince Rupert, and from bis long experience Mr.  Stamford should make a success of his  latest venture. He states that the deal  for the Northwest Coal company's properties has not yet been completed, but  that Mr. Ciergue informed him lest fall  that he had raised three millions of dollars for the scheme and that Laurier had  promised to take the matter up aud make  eveiythiiig all right. The stockholders  in Northwest coal are still praying.  General Charles Warren writes from-  Butie lo say that the people are slowly  lecoveriug in that busy burg from the  tumble in copper last October. He is at  the head of a tealty and mining company  and during the year has secured some  good mining claime in Gold Circle,  Nevada. The 'general will not be in B.  C. this summer, foul wishes his army of  friends to remember that tbe latch string  is always upon the outside of his mansion  in Butte, and that he can still dig up four  foils for tbe drinks.  Captain T. J. Duncan writes from Wan-  eta to say that he is farming iu real  earnest upon a ranch owned by his wife  and sou, and that in embryo it is one of  the best farms iu B. C. Duncan at one  time put thousands of dollars into miniug  around Nelson, and induced others to put  in vast sums, but like ..several other old-  timers he had to walk" out loaded with  experience but short on cash.  Pete Schuuberg writes from Perry siding in the Slocan to say that he has a  young fruit farm, with lots of chickens, ,  but 110 galena. Pete- is also postmaster  aud invites the editor to drop in and have  a mess of pork and beans when he is  passing that way. It may take time but'  the editor will some day strike Perry  siding.  A policeman in Ladysmith arrested a  negress the other day for being drunk  aud disorderly. He had to pack her on  his back iu order to get the dusky dame  to the police station. On thc ruareh part  of her clothing fell off and the spectators say that the procession created a  great sensation.

'���������OBttaaseaC*^^  (Continued)  ������jir iriu oilier side of tlio house we  rliscovorud Agnes, busily engaged  binding up tho wounds of those who  had boon hurt. She was deadly pale,  foul hor bravery was not a bit diminished. When wo got back to our own  quarters wo had counted three dead  men, two placed hors do combat by  their wounds.-, and Pve more or less  cut and scratched. Of the enemy we  estimated that at least u hundred had  fallen bofore our rifles, never to rise  again.  For something like half-an-liour we  stood at our posts, waiting to be attacked, but thc foe showed no'sign  o" moving. I was just wondering what  the next move would bo when I hoard  ;i shout from the right. I gripped my  ride and peered ahead of me, but  Micro was nothing to be seen save the  foe crouching behind their shelters In  the distance.  "What is it?" I cried to my right-  hand neighbor. "What do they soo?"  "A   horseman,"    ho    replied,   "and  coming in our direction."  "Is he mad?" I cried, "or doesn't  he see his danger?"  My informant did not reply, and a  moment later I saw for myself the  person referred to. Ho was mounted  on a grey horse, and was riding as  fast as his animal could travel in our  dirootion. I turned my eyes awaj  from him for a monicni "When I looked again I saw a' man rise from behind a bush and hurl a spear at him.  The cruel weapon was thrown with  unerring aim and struck the horse  just behind the saddle. Ho leapt into  the air, and then with a scream, of  agony that could bo heard quite plainly where we all stood watching, dashed frantically towards as. He had not,  however, gone a hundred yards before he put his foot into a hole, and  fell with a crash to the ground, to He  * i-to,./.  :������uli  Jiia    neck    was  broken, so we discovered later.  From where I stood, to the place  where the man and beast lay, was  scarcely eighty yards; thence, on to  tho spot where {he enemy wore in ambush, not more Mian a hundred. For  some reason���������why, I shall never be  able to explain���������an irresistible desire  to save the injured man came over  me. I could not havo resisted it, even  had I wished to do so. xVccordingly, I  placed my rifle against the axle,  sprang upon the box of the wagon  wheel, vaulted over, and ran as hard  as I couhP'go towards the victim of  the accident. Ahead of me I could distinctly see the nodding plumes of the  foo as they crouched behjnd their  enormous shields. They aid not, however, move, and I was thus enabled  to roach tho man's side, and to take  hiiii in my arms unmolested. I had  not gone ten yards on my return  journey, however, before I heard their  yells, and knew that they were after  me. Fortunately, I had nearly a hundred and twenty yards start; but I  had a heavy man to carry, and was  quite out of breath. However, I was  not going to be beaten, so putting out  every ounce of strength I boasted in  my body, 1 raced on. By the time I  reached the wagons again, the foe  were not fifty yards behind me. A  couple of assegais whistled passed  my ears as I climbed over the wheel  and dropped my burden on the ground,  but fortunately neither hit me. So exhausted was I that for a moment I  leant against the wagon, unable to  move. But the instinct of self-preservation gave me strength, and picking  up my rifle I let drive blindly at the  nearest of the foe who was already  on the wheel before me. I saw the  man's forehead open out like a cracked walnut as my'shot caught it, and  a moment later he fell forward on the  tyre���������dead. I threw him off in time to  shoot the next man as he took his  place. Of the following five minutes  my only recollection is a sense of overpowering heat; a throat and mouth  parched like the sands of the Great  Sahara; a rifle growing every moment hotter in my hand, and dominating all the necessity of stemming, at  any cost, the crowd of black humanity  that seemed to be overwhelming me.  How long the fight lasted I cannot  say. But at lact k. cnecr from the  other side of the laager reached me,  and almost at the same instant the  enemy turned tail and fled for their  live3. Then, with an empty rifle at my  feet, a dripping cutlass in one hand,  and a still smoking revolver in the  other, I leant against the wagon and  laughed hysterically till I fell fainting  to the ground.  poriuiiciy mjiuu 10 our- nssrsionce,  were unsaddling after chasing tho  enemy, and preparing to camp.  After 1 had had a few moments'  conversation with the doctor, Mr May-  bourne and Agnes came up to me  again, and congratulated me on having saved the stranger's life. The  praise they gave me was altogether  undeserved, for, us i have already explained, i iiciii done the thing on the  spur of the moment without for an  instant considering the danger to  which 1 bad exposed myself. When  thoy had finished I enquired where  the man was, and in reply they led  me into the house.  ���������'T.v, .'odor says It is ouiln' a hopeless case,"' eaid Agnes, turning to me  in thc doorway; "the poor fellow  must have injured his spine when his  horse fell with him."  I followed her into tho room which  had once been my own sleeping apart  ment. It was now filled with wounded.  The man 1 had brought in lay upon a  mattress in the corner hy tho window, and, with Agues beside mo, I  went, across to him. Once there I looked down at his face, and then, with a  cry that oven on pain of death I could  not have kept hack, I fell against the  ���������vail, as Agnes afterwards told me,  ���������1.1SH to .the very lips. I don't know  jw" to tell you who I saw there; I  don't know how to make you believe  It, or how to enable you to appreciate  my feelings. One thing was certain,  lying on the bed before mo, his head  bandaged up, and a bushy beard  clothing the lower half of the face,  was no less a person than Richard  Bartrand���������my old enemy and the man  I believed myself to have murdered In  London so many months before. I  could hardly believe my eyes; I stared  at him and then looked away���������only  lo look back again half oYpcctlng to  find him gor.s. Confcl this be any mistake? I asked myself. Could it bo only  a deceiving likeness, or an hailucina-  tion of an overtaxed brain? Hardly  knowing what I did I draggcd-Agnes  by the wrist out of thc house lo a  quiet corner, where I leant against  the wall feeling as if I were going to  faint again.  "What is the matter, Gilbert?" she  cried. "Oh, what is tho matter with  you:  y  CHAPTER XJII.  When I recovered consciousness I  found a stranger dressed in uniform  kneeling beside me. What was more  singular still I was not under the  wagon a? before, but was lying surrounded by a dozen or so of my comrades In the verandah of my own  house. Agnes was kneeling beside me,  and her father was holding a basin  of water at my feet.  "Thero is nothing at all to he alarmed about, my dear young lady," the  man in uniform was saying as he felt  my pulse. "Your friend here will live  to fight another "day, cr a hundred  days for that, matter. By this time tomorrow he'll be as well as ever."  Then, turning to me, he asked; "how  do you feel now?"  I replied that I felt much stronger;  and then, ooklng up at Mr. Maybourne,  enquired If wc had beaten oft tho  enemy,  "They have been utterly routed," replied the gentleman I addressed. "The  credit, however, is duo to -^Captain  Havlland and his men; but for their  timely arrival I fear wo should have  been dono for. Flesh and blood could  not have stood tho strain another  half hour."  "Stuff and nonsense," said tho doctor, for such I afterwards discovered  ho was, "all the credit Is due to yourselves; and, by George, you deserve  't. A finer stand was never made In  this country, or for that matter In any  other."  After a few minutes' rest and  another sip of brandy, I managed to  get on to my feet. It was a sad sight  I had before me. Stretched out In  rows beyond the verandah rails were  tho bodies of the gallant fellows who  had beon killed���������twelve In number.  On rough beds placed In tho verandah  Itself and also In tho hoiiso were tho  wounded; while on the plain all round  b������yo/id tho laager might havo been  nr.en the bodies of the Matabcle dead.

Free lo marry you���������free  to do as I please, and live as I please,  and go where I please! ! ! For there  in that bed is my old cneray, ti.t man  I told you I !������.ad irtlled."  For a second she must have thought  me mad, for I noticed she shrank a  step away from mo, and looked at mo  with an apprehensive -glance. But she  soon recovered her composure, and  asked if I were certain of what I said.  "As certain as I am that you aro  standiug before me now," I answered.  "I should know him anywhere. Where  is the doctor?"  A moment later I had found thc.doc-  tor.  "Doctor," I said, "there is a man in  that room yonder whom, I am told,  you say has a broken back. He is unconscious. Will he remain so until ho  dies?"  "Most probably," was   the   other's  matter-of-fact reply  as  he  began  to  . bind up the arm of the man he had  been operating on. "Why do you ask?"  "Because it is a matter of the most  vital importance that I should speak  with him before he dies. All the happiness of my life and another's depends upon it."  "Very well. Don't worry yourself.  I'll see what I can do for you. Now go  away and be quiet. I'm busy."  I went away as ho ordered mo, and  leant against thc verandah rails at  the back of the house. .My head was  swimming, and I could hardly think  coherently. Now that Ban rand was  alive, every obstacle was cleared away  ���������I was free to marry Agnes as soon  as her father would let me; free to  do whatever I pleased in the world.  The reaction was almost more than I  could bear. No words could over-estimate my relief and joy.  Half an hour later the doctor came  to me.  "Your man is conscious now," he  said. "But you'd beUer look sharp if  you want to ask him anything. He  won't last long."  I followed him into the house to  the corner where the sick man .lay.  As soon ns he saw me, Bartrand showed with his eyes that he lecognizod  aie.  Tcmu Ihorne," he whispered, as 1  knelt by the bed, "this is a strange  meeting. Do you know I've been hun'-  ing for you these nine months past?"  "Hunting for me?" I said. "Why, I  thought you dead!"  "I allowed it to be supposed that I  was," he answered. "I can tell you,  '. Pennethorne, that money I swindled  you out .if never brought mean ounce  of luck���������nor Gibbs either. He turned  cocktivl and sent his share back to  me almost at .once. He was drinking  himself to death on it, I heard. Now  look at me, I'm here���������dying in South  Africa. They tell me you saved me  to-day at the risk of your life."  "Never mind that nov.-," I said.  "We've got other things to talk about."  "But I must mind," he answered.  "Listen to what I have to tell you,  and don't interrupt me. Three nights  before I disappeared last winter, 1  made my will, leaving you everything.  It's more than the value of the mine,  fori brought off some big speculations  with the money, and almost doubled  my capital. You may not believe it,  but I always felt sorry for you, even  when I stole your secret. I'm a pretty  had lot, hut J couldn't steal your  money and not. be a bit sorry. But,  funny as it may seem to say so, I  hated you nil the time too���������hated  you more than any other man on Clod's  earth. Now you've risked your life for  me, and I'm dying in your house. How  strangely things turn out, don't thoy?"  Here the doc.or gave him something  to drink, and bade me let him bo quiet  for a few moments. Presently Bartrand recovered his strength, and be  gan again.  "Ono day, soon after I arrived In  London from Australia, I fell In low  with a man named Nikola. I tell you,  Pennetliorno, if ever you see that man  beware of him, for he's tho Devil, and  nobody elsa. I tell you ho proposed  the most ilcndlsh things to me and  showed me such a side of human nature that, If I- hadn't quarrelled with  him and not seen so much of hlrn I  should have been driven into a lunatic asylum.

"He used  uvery means in his power to induce  me to give it to him, but I refused  time afior time. lie showed mo his  power, tried to hypnotize me oven, and  finally told me I should bo a dead man  in a week if I did not let him havo  the money. I wasn't going to be bluffed, so I declined again. By this time  I distrusted my servants, my friends,  and everybody with whom I came in  contact. I could not sloop, and I could  not  oat. All  my  arrangements were  made, and 1 was going to leave BngJ  land on the Saturday. On the Wednesday Nikola and J were to meet at a  house, on  special  business.  We  saw  ���������each other at a club, and I called a  hansom,-intending to go on and wait  for him. I had a dreadful cold, and  carried some cough drops iu a little  silver box in my pocket, lie must have  got possession of it, and substitu'ed  some preparations of his own. Feeling my cough returning, I took one in  the cab as I drove along. After that I  remember no more till I came round  and found myself lying in tho middle  of the road, half covered wllh snow,  and wilJi a bruise thc size of a teacup on  the back of my    head.    For  sonic reason of his own Nikola had  tried lo do for me; and-the cabman,  frightened  nr. my state, had pitched  ivc c.t and left me. As somj as I could  walk mid  it was daylight.   I    determined to find you at your hotel, In  order to hand over to you the money  I had stolen from you, and then I was  going to bolt from  England  for my  life. But when I reached Blankerton's  I was told that you had left. I traced  your luggage to Aberdeen; but, though  I wasted a week looking, I couldn't  find you  there. Three months ago I  chanced upon a snapshot photograph  taken in Cape Town, and reproduced  in an American illustrated paper. It  represented one of the only two survivors of the Fiji   Princess,   and   I  recognized you immediately, and followed  you,  first to Capo Town and  then, bit by bit, out hero.

You'll find yourself  one of tho richest men in the world,  or I'm mistaken. I can only say I hope  you'll have bettor luck with the money  than I have had. I'm glad you've got  it again; for, somehow, I'd fixed the  idea in my head that I shouldn't rest  quietly in my grave unless I restored  it to you. One caution!

A Curious Adventure Among the Natives of Africa.  Mrs. Constance Larymore, author of  "A Resident's Wife In Nigeria," recounts this curiois adventure in Africa: "The'sahib, as from Ineradicable  Indian habit I still commonly call my  husband, had gone out at sunset after  deer, aud during his absence the entire  population of tho village came streaming up the hill to tbe rest house, all  talking loudly aud at once and evidently uuder the influence of strong excitement. I was by that' time well accustomed to creating a sensation whenever I appeared, no white woman having been seen previously, but these  people struck me as haviug more than  saluatious in their minds aud on their  clamoring tongues. I had been six  weeks in the couutry. My knowledge of  nausa was confined to salutations and  a few simple words, so I summoned  our interpreter to help me to entertain  my visitors.  "They chattered, shouted and gesticulated at Paul, who eventually explained to me smilingly that they had uevcr  seen a white woman before and were  anxious to offer me a personal welcome. I nodded-and smiled in high,  gratification, thanked them cordially  and when I had exhausted my small  stock of polite salutations told the interpreter to give them leave to go  home. This they did, somewhat reluctantly, I thought, but after describing the Interview with some amusement to the sahib I dismissed the matter from my mind.  "Six weeks later we passed through  Lukpa again on our -way back to Loko-  Ja and found it deserted���������not a man,  woman or child, not a goat, not a fowl  ���������all gone, obviously, fled into the bush.

You acted like a boy  that had found a cent on thc street."  "And I felt like one. I was full of  anticipation. I was jubilant. I was  enthusiastic. Today, Mrs. Bowser, is  the anniversary of my annual rabbit  hunt. Today I hie me forth to the annual slaughter, and nr the same time I  keep my eyes open for the first spring  robin." '   .  "You m?nn you are going out into the  country to plow your -way through  snowdrifts three feet deep all day and  come borne without having even seen a  blue jay?"  "I mean, my dear woman, that I am  going out into the country to shoot a  hundred or more rabbits and have  heaps of sport There is some snow,  but that belongs with sport, aud don't  you worry about blue jays. The question is, How many .rabbits can we  make use of in the homo larder? I  want to see the butcher this morning  ns I go out and arrange with him. for  what's left over."  "You are determined to go?" she  asked.  "Nothing eau stop me."  "Then you. can send home about  twenty-five rabbits by the farmer's  team you hire, and the-other hundred  or so can be left at tho butcher's. If  we get tired of eating our share I can  give the rest away tothe poor. Please  shoot them through the bead ns far as  you can, so ns not to muss up the  meat. You'll find telephones at almost  every farmhouse. I wish you'd keep  me posted as you go along."  "By George, but that's the way to  talk!" exclaimed Mr. Bowser as he  brought his fist down������on the tattle. "I  thought you were going to be mean  and sarcastic about it. Now I can go  forth with a jubilant heart and knock  over 100, 200, 500 of the plumpest, fattest rabbits in the land. Yes, I'll telephone you every hour. It will be almost  as if you were with me. Say, now, but  we'll make this the greatest annual  hunt I ever hud, and rabbit fur will  be flying up and down this street like  thistledown in a gale of wind."  Wifey Encourages Him.  Mrs. Bowser bad started out to be  sarcastic, but had ended In encouraging him. The wife who sees that her  husband Is bound and determined  should fall in line with his ideas. Half  on hour, after breakfast Mr. Bowser  stood before her arrayed in hls-shoot-  Ing suit, and lie "was in such good  spirits that she was almost glad to see  blm go. He departed to take a suburban car and be landed 'among, the  snowdrifts lire miles uwny, and he  had been gone hardly more than an  hour when he called her up by telephone to say:  "I am out here In the country. Have  just met a farmer who says that there  arc more'n a million rabbits a mile  farther on. He says he never snw  such plump, fat rabbits; says they  Just wait for you to shoot 'em. I arranged with the butcher to take seven- .  ty-flve, bin you can send word ovci |  that I'll make It 1100. It's glorious out  here.   Good by."  Mr. Bowser had Indeed mot n-former on the highway, and the farmer had  told him ns above. He was a good  hearted farmer and also n good liar.  He hadn't scon a rabbit all winter,  but he felt ho ought to encourage a  man that had come six miles on an  annual.hunt. An hour after the first  telephone message came tho second arrived.   Mr. Bowser said:  "Tho million rabbits had all gone by  the time I got to the spot; but, oh, you  ought to see tho tracks left behind V  -such largo tracks, such generous  tracks, so many tracks! 1 am nt a  farmhouse where tho farmer snys that  ho has iiuide n hundred dollars a week  this season shooting rabbits.

The farmer will,  hire me his team after the slaughter."-  The reason Mr. Bowser wasn't heard  of again for the next two hours was  because ho was looking for the spot of  '���������'congregation." In looking for this he  had to plow through a piece of woods,  skirt a marsh and cross three open  fields where .the snow lay .'two feet  deep. Once in making this journey lu'  thought he heard a blue Jay cry out.  and again lie thought he caught the  noise of a woodpecker on'a dead tree,'  but he .wasn't quite sure in either case.  Ho reached the spot at last to find the.  rabbits gone. The convention bad met  and adjourned. He then .walked to u  farmhouse and telephoned: '  '  "I was just too late again, but I have  lost none of my enthusiasm. Annual  rabbit hunt is bound to bo a success.

Hears a Strange Voice.  Half an hour later there was another  ring, but it was not from Mr. Bowser.  It wns a strange voice that said:  "Hello! Am I speaking to Mrs. Bowser ?"  "Yes."  "Wife of Samuel Bowser?"  "Yes." v  "Short, baldheaded man?"  "Yes."  "Is ho out on his annual rabbit hunt  today?"  "Yes.  Is anything wrong?"  "That's what I wnnted to ask you.  "There is a man wandering around here  ivho says his name is Samuel Bowser.  He is talking about blue jays, woodpeckers and rabbits, and we thought  no was loose in- the top of his "head.  It's all right, however, if you say so."  "Has he shot any rabbits yet?"  isked Mrs. Bowser.  "Lord bless you, ma'am, he don't  know a rabbit from a red calf I"  The" next message was from Mr.  "Bowser himself. His voice had lost  lomething of its jubilation, but he was  'till game.  "No rabbits yet," he phoned, "but 1  im on the trail and expecting to come  icross them any moment; also to see a  robin. Have just been talking with a  farmer who says that the rabbits must  have heard that I am out here, but he  tells me uot to give up. 1 shall stick to  the trail. Tho rabbit is coy and cute,  but Samuel Bowser is coyer and cuter.  When I once get to work, the slaughter  will go on for hours. I may not be  home for two days. Tell the'butcher���������  well, you needn't tell him anything  this time. He said he would be pro-  pared to take any number up to a thousand."  ���������' There .was.one more message. It was  not from Mr. Bowser, but from a  farmer's wife-, and she said:  "If this is Mrs. Bowser, let me say  (hat my husband nnd two sons are  now chasing^ your husband across the  fields.

It is correct to arrivo in-plenty of  time to dress for dinner, but visitort  must not expect to bo mot by their  royal host and hostess, for, although  whon he wan Prince of-Walos His Majesty was on tho doorstep of his abode  ready with a hearty .welcome, now it  v, not until dinner is sorved that tho  sovereign and his consort meet their  visitors. ���������  Neither nt breakfast nor at lunch���������  unless it bo partaken of at thc shoot  ���������will Their Majesties appear; therefore tho great.occasion of dinnerisall  the more auspicious, though tea is  also graced by thc.royal presence.

The King is a great connoisseur upon dress, and though he does not, as  monarch, stoop to take tho personal  notice of it that he did on one occasion���������when, as 'Prince of Wales, an  unlucky guest appeared in a black  tie instead of a white, whereupon r  white one was sorved up to him' by a  flunkey upon a silver salver���������his order that kncc-brccchos and silk stockings are to'bo worn with evening dress  by all men whon Indies are present  is so well known that it is followed  in society invariably by many, well-  garbed  men.

Quebec will  bo filled to repletion by thousands  from England and the United States,  and tens of thousands from' Canada,  but fully ten millions of people "will  wish to be present, and cannot find  hotel accommodation.  One of thc greatest matters of anxiety to those organizing the celebration has been the question how to "provide tho millions of people who cannot see the celebration with illustrations and descriptions, to give the  scones of grandeur to tho world in  their entirety.  Arrangements have been completed  by  The   Standard   of  Montreal,   now  recognized as the National Illustrated  I'aper of Canada,  to issue what will  bo known as  "Tho Standard Tercentenary Number," published by George  Murray   Publishing Company,    Montreal.    Wo have had' the privilege of  examining thc proofs of some of the-  gorgeous supplements to go with The  Standard.    They  eclipse  in  interest,  in fidelity of detail, in beauty of color  and execution, anything ever attempted in Canada, and will bring the Tercentenary  celebration  right  into  tlie  homos of those lucky enough to procure a copy.  To connoisseurs The Sxandard Tercentenary Number is one that expert  judges would think could not be���������sold  under $2.50, and yet it is to be published at 50 cents.. It will be practically the only Tercentenary souvenir. The publishers announce that  orders aie now being booked, and all  orders mailed on or .before June ?7  will-bo certain to'be filled! After that  date tho public must take their  chance, first come, first served.   .  Where orders remitted for cannot  bo filled, remittance will be refunded.  The Publishers of The Standard, 171  St. James St., Montreal, have gained a continental reputation for their  publication. The coining issue, to  illustrate the Tercentenary Celebration, will certainly be the most interesting thing of the kind ever produced  on this continent. We prod'et that in  one month after the celebration it  will be in demand at even ten dollars a copy.  They cannot begin to issue enough  to meet a demand that will be phenomenal. It is a pleasure to testify  ���������to the value of a thing of surpassing  merit.���������Exchange.  "When T started in business," said  elry purchased by His Majesty for  wedding presents, and like gifts, and  ''theatre tickets,' and other sundry bills  which are not paid by the Keeper oi  thc Privy Purse.  When   he   buys   such   articles   ns  clothes or jewelry, His Majesty never  inquires their price. They are simply  ordered, and  the accounts for   them  are sent to the Keeper of the Privy  Purse, who hands them to the Superintendent of the Wardrobe. It is King  ��������� Edward's wish to pay a fair and reasonable price for everything he buys  in this way, and it is Mr. Chandler's  business to see that the price charged  is reasonable, and not extortionate, as  is sometimes the case.   When an extortionate charge is made, the account  is simply sent back to tho tradesman,  with a request to send in the account  again.   Of course, thc tradesman can,  if he wishes, insist on being paid the  full'amount of his original account;  but if he docs so���������unless, of course,  he   can   show   that   the   amount   he  charged is reasonable���������lie will lose thc  patronage of his Sovereign, and most  likely   of  all  other   members   of   the  Royal  Family  whose  names he  may  have  on   his   books,  and   this  might  mean a serious monetary loss, apart  from the loss of prestige.  When the accounts have all been  checked and carefully scrutinized by  the Superintendent of the Wardrobe,  they, are submitted to the King, ..and  are then promptly discharged.  Of course, many accounts that pass  through Mr. Cliandlcr's hands are for  articles for which a fixed charge is  ��������� made��������� such as for theatre tickets,  newspapers,, periodicals, and books.  These accounts are settled at regulaT  quarterly intervals.  In his capacity of supervisor of the'  royal wardrobe, Mr. Chandler has  many complicated duties to attend to.  Bofore the Kin������r dons a"uniform, it is  puts on a dummy figure by Mr. Chandler's assistants, and is then carefully  inspected by the Superintendent of thc  Wardrobe, who has to see that every  buckle, band, stray and ribbon are all  in their right places���������a piece-of work  that requires a .most accurate and  complete knowledge of a hijrhly intricate subject fo be performed efficiently and correctly.  In addition, the Superintendent of  the Wardrobe has to know how to  place correctly every order worn by  the King. In his knowledge on this  subject Mr. Chandler is said to be  without a rival in Europe, with the  exception of King Edward himself,  who is probably the greatest living  authority on the subject of European  orders.

Playing Safe.  Amateur,   holding   five   aces,   leans  over to professional poker player ami  whispers, "Blllle, how would you play  that linnd?"  Such is the testimony of Mr. Lud-  ger Duguny, Pidgeon Hill, Quebec.  This is common story. Thousands  of people have been cured of Itch,  Piles, Eczema, or Salt Rheum, '.etc.,  by Dr. Chase's Ointment.  Salt Rheum is one of the   most important, of skin diseases.    It occurs  anywhere, at any time, and on anyone.   It often "starts as a rash, eventually breaking out in sores discharging water.   Unless something is done  to stop this discharge, n crust will  form, which signifies    an    advanced  stage  of. this    disagreeable    disease.  Upon tho first application, this ointment stops itching, loosens the congested  matter or    scab,    thoroughly  cleanses tho sore, and after nil dirt  and  poison   has   been  taken  out,  it  allows   nature   to   heal   tho   affected  part through its agency, pure blood.  Hero  arc  the  words  of  Mr.  Ludgor  Unguay, Pidgeon Hill, Quobec:  "The experience which my wife lias  had with Dr. Chase's Ointment for  eczema nnd snlt rheum is of very  great importance, because for many  months sho was not nblo to servo  herself with her hands, Since having used Dr. Chase's Ointment she  1ms been ontiroly cured,"  Injlio most simple as well ns the  most aggravated skin irritation or  eruption, this oinlmont is certain to  give  highly  natisfactory  results;   00  Traveling.  Gen.   French's   adventures   in  thc  South African'war were endless, but  one of the most amu.'ing occurred one  morning, when a war correspondent.  .with..a>.rather high-handed   manner,  came riding into camp.   He saw a soldier outsid" one of tH tents, so dismounted.   "Is  t'ds   French's camp?"  he asked   "Yes." replied the soldier.  "Then hold my how while I go in and  .���������search for him."

"Where   is  French?" he asked.   "He was here a  moment    ago,"   replied    tho   officer.  "There lie is- 'but what the mischief  is he doing holding thnt horse?"

The tests are new carried on at either  tlie army or navy proving grounds,  with guns at no great distance from  tho armor, and Ihe armor presenting  a fixed and certain target which may  be attacked under the most favorable  conditions.  All this is now changed by the increase  in  endurance of  the torpedo,  the most deadly of all weapons when  it  can  be  fired   with  accuracy,  and  when  it lasts long enough to  reach  the enemy.    The torpedo used to be  something   of   a   toy,  except   within  limited  range;  but lately  to it has  been given  a propulsion which will  carry it two miles, with   every   prospect that this distance will soon be  doubled.   Battleships armed with torpedo tubes, which are the means of  firing torpedoes, will some day be able  to  keej> a  foe  at  a respectable  distance, and a battleship having a four-  mile- torpedo  in its  ordnance equipment will be a veritable floating terror of the sea.  The battleship which is to be designed along the lines dictated by the triumph of the torpedo will be a vessel  which may easily scorn the ten and  twelve-inch guns which are now carried in heavy turrets", and which shall  offer no discouragement to a vessel  which may fire a torpedo four miles  and blow up the opposing vessel, no  matter how it is freighted ;with turretcd armament or laden with "invulnerable" armor.  The saving which may be effected  by' taking off the heavy guns and  abandoning the turrets may be used  in giving greater weight to the machinery, and so drive the ship through  the water at a faster rate than is possible with battleships to-day. Some  of this saving in weight may also be  used to give thicker armor plates along  the water line and below���������wherever  the torpedo is likely to strike.  Such a departure from the existing  conditions  furnishes   many   problems  with which the naval designer must  cope.    They  include  such  details  as  the storage of the torpedoes, and their  rapid handling by special mechanical  devices   from   the   magazines   below  deck to  the breech  or mouth of the  tubes above.   Those questions will not  b-2  settled  without  the  controversies  which   seem  to  be  inseparable  from  naval design, construction and equipment; but for the present it will be  .sufficient merely to mention this interesting possibility of a gunless war  vessel.

In   the   twelve   months   this  amounted to the stupendous total of  82,125,249,3-17 gallons,   representing   c  daily average supply per head of little  under 33 gallons  (nearly three hundredweights of water), or considerably  over 50 gallons a year for every man,  woman, and child living on the entire  earth to-day.

Eating them raw in milk,  sugar, butter and similar articles  we do not thing is proper from a  hygienic standpoint.  Thousands in the United States  object to Taffc because ho is a Unitarian in religion. In order to  avoid friction Taft should conform  to the religious hallucination of  each individual voter.

Tiik slowness of the construc-  rion of the V., V. & E. from  Keremeos westward is no doubt  owing to ths fact that Jim Hill has  not yet been able to find a suitable  paJ-s through the Hope mountains  and he does not care to build a tunnel forty miles long. Surveyors  are s-till looking for a pass, and if  it is found the road will then lose  no time in reaching the coast.  Vaccixatiox is notorious for  the spreading of tuberculosis, and  smallpox is preferable to the white  plague. The majority of people  do not think and that is why we  see so many laboring under the delusion that vaccination will prevent  or kill smallpox. It is merely a  medical superstition and deserves  no rccogiiiti.su in these days of  modern medicine and sanitation.  A country "that permits vaccination has its face turned to the past  and worships the pust of a rotten  fetich.  BETWEEN   TWO   TEMPTATIONS.  The home of Kaslo's leading  light is sandwiched between a bank  and a restaurant, a fact that gives  tone to the printery, but the stall  must be surely tried by temptation  when they hear'the rattle of money  on one side and smell the cooking  from the Jollier. Tantalizing mistakes occur, as the following will  hear witness:  "A fierce-looking old brigand  witn whiskers waltzed into the  Kootenaiau business oflice on Friday morning and put down several  hundred dollars in hills upon the  counter. Thinking that some former sinner had reformed and was  coming to pay for his delinquencies, the cashier stretched his mitt  out for the money. Just as this  move was made thc old party saw  that he had made, a mistake���������for  he grabbed the crisp greenbacks  and made oil' out the door saying  as ho went 'Ti'gosh, [ thought this  was tho bank'."  A CROOKED BUNCH.  Judging from what the Eye-  Opener says about the Liberals of  Kegina some chaps over there  ought to be in the pfii instead of  making laws. The Eye-Opener in  part says :  " Tho next scene in this comedy  of corruption is unfolded when the  returning officer appears in the  role of real estate agent and buys  property for tho now parliament  building site adjoining the city at  a figure approximating ������225' per  acre and sells it to the government  imido of two weeks at a profit of  upwards of 870,000 !  " The government could have  purchased the property direct from  the original owner for $225 per  acre, more especially as the city  had, by resolution of ihe council,  offered as a free gift to the government a magnificent site exactly  opposite the purchased site and  within the city limits, where water,  electric light, lire protection, etc.  were right at their doors, and  whore it would have been within  easy reach of the citizens and people who' had business to transact  at tbe government oflices.  "And tho 870,000rake-off? Just  read on.  " This introduces the voting on  tlie location of the capital and the  buying up of the Saskatchewan  legislature, or a sufficient proportion thereof, to ensure the selec-.  tion of Eegina as'against Saskatoon.- It involves a laughable  story of bribery and of the bribers  bping double-crossed by thebribees,  when the bribers .of the first  part were outbid by the bribers of the second part, the bribees  being duly elected members of the  legislature. It is all very shocking, but is perfectly true, every  word of it.  "The Saskatoon fellows came  down to Eegina with a bunch of  money, in the neighborhood of  820,000. They went quite openly  to the local banks and cashpd the  drafts, so that it became known to  thp Eegina men that there was  something doing. Within two  days of the vote the Eegina men  got frightened and started in to  raise dollar for dollar and a little  morf. Then it became a question  of the highest bidder-! Bidding  for what ? Bidding with hard cash  for tbe-votes of .venal-Liberal mem-,  hers of the Saskatchewan legislature.  "Pitiful sight!  ���������'Well, the result nearly made  several worthy Saskatoon gentlemen throw a series of fits. On the  vote being taken it was found that  only two had voted in favor of  Saskatoon���������the member for Saskatoon himself and one other. Old  Jimmy Clinkskill, Frank Oliver,  Davidson and others of the Saskatoon crowd who had gone down to  see the vote taken, siit speechless  with horror at the turn things had  taken. And the 820,000 all gone  to. too !    Dear, dear!"  The Kootenay Cigar Co. of Nelson have in the Royal Seal a cigar  that is known and smoked between  the wheat country and the blue  Pacific.  What was money made for?  asks a contemporary. There are  two theories.

The  first day she was there, when her  husband called to ��������� enquire j^about  her, the doctor said she was improving.    On thc second day he  ivas again told she was improving,  and on the. third and fourth days  the assurance was the same. This  was very encouraging to the old  German, but when he called on  the fifth day, he was told that his  wife was dead.  In his grief he sought his favorite saloon to drown his sorrow.  "Vat's do matter?" asked the  sympathetic bartender, noticing  his customer's despondent condition.  "Ach ! Mine wife iss dead," replied the Gorman.  "So? Vat did sho die mit?"  asked the bartender.
